    I have worked with Mr. Shapiro on many matters over the past many years and he is simply the best attorney with whom or against whom I have ever litigated. He prepares meticulously for court. His briefs are well researched and his arguments are compelling. I rank him at the very top of the profession, and I highly recommend Tony Shapiro.
